The Star Trek Giant Poster Book was a poster magazine published by Paradise Press in the 1970s. Each issue - or "Voyage" as they were termed - comprised eight pages, featuring articles on various subjects related to Star Trek, as well as images from Star Trek: The Original Series. The issues folded out to a 34"x22.5" poster. A special release of the magazine was published to tie-in with the release of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Allan Asherman, Doug Drexler and Geoffrey Mandel were also involved with the publication, Drexler and Barlow being approached to edit the publication as a result of the notability of the Star Trek store the pair ran in New York City.
